On Tuesday morning, Save Jerseyans, Rep. Scott Garrett (NJ-05) became the latest elected New Jersey Republican to formally endorse Steve Lonegan ahead of August’s U.S. Senate special election primary.
“This year’s special election for U.S. Senate presents a unique opportunity for New Jersey to be represented by an individual who will fight for lower taxes, less debt, and a more limited government,” offered Rep. Scott Garrett in a statement released by the Lonegan compaign. “Today, I am endorsing Steve Lonegan, as he clearly has the grassroots energy, campaign organization, and knowledge of the issues to effectively represent our party in the election and our state in the Senate. It is critical that we work together to push back against the Obama administration’s numerous overreaches and set our country on course for a more secure, economically vibrant future.”
Lonegan has already secure the support of Rep. Leonard Lance (NJ-07) and most of the GOP establishment. He’s still facing a primary challenge from Dr. Aleita Eck.
